The article investigates the correlation between personality, namely psychoticism (P), extraversion (E) and neuroticism (N), and sexual behavior in Great Britain. The study uses 423 unmarried male students and 379 unmarried female students, where they were administered with P, E and N inventory, 19-question sexual questionnaire and Sexual Attitudes Inventory. The results indicate that some 15 factors were sufficient to account for the attitudes sampled and that personality scores were also found to be correlated with some of the sex attitude factors. A discussion on the results of the study is offered.
